Blog? Article? Or budding thesis?

I’ve been reading… oh dear! Yes, there is a dark side to reading. Because it beckons me to question and leaves me in a rather dubious cuffuffle until I connect the dots.  After 10 months of languishing, The Wizard is back and after reading his delightfully colourful and provocative Museletter, he spoke of elegant rants,…

Vulnerability

Vulnerability is… Not about weakness or frailty, and it means different things to different people.  A common thread of vulnerability is – transition.  Children are vulnerable because they are growing up and don’t know how the world works. Patients are vulnerable while they are convalescing and not at full strength in mind and body. Adults…

Radical Truth and Radical Transparency – Ray Dalio

Might have its pros and cons. It encourages speaking out and broad thinking – winner! But can be a bitter pill to swallow for some – at first. This sort of organisational culture takes a huge amount of psychological safety and won’t happen overnight. It takes guts to implement over time and you might lose…

It interprets and guides our thoughts, values, opinions and behaviours. And it’s not necessary, or even possible, to re-calibrate to be…

Consider the Bigger Picture

The recent Brian Cox Planets series has been a fascinating watch and really does help to put things into perspective. Living on this tiny speck of dust we call home. Even more so, other solar systems follow a consistent pattern – they are doing things their way. Then there’s ours – and we are doing…

To blog or not to blog…

I started blogging through Medium (Instagram for writers) in May 2019, migrating to a website that August and I have never looked back. Maintaining a 2-year streak of weekly blogs.
